Snow!


Out of the bosom of the Air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent and soft and slow
Descends the snow.



That was Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem. So yes, we had the first snow here in Z├╝rich today! And the world looks beautiful again… But I didn’t take any pictures because it was too windy. Later my friends… How is the weather on your sides of the world?

In time for tea and cookies! You can't say no to lavender tea and cookies flavoured with lemon and almonds :D

Milena said...

You bet! I'm coming! :D

Nikola said...

Currently it's raining here. Not my perfect weather conditions...

Milena said...

I love rain! :D Well, I love just about any weather condition that is not into 'too hot' category.

I prefer clear weather! Snow can be nice... especially when ur in love :]

Milena said...

Milos-e, are you? :D I want details! Send e-mail :D

Any weather is nice when you're in love, really. One might say love creates its own season.

It's sort of chilly here, but dry. Not too bad. I wish I could live in a place where it was between 40 and 75 Fahrenheit throughout the year. It could rain for half the year and I'd be fine. But I'm not a big fan of snow, and at the height of summer I mostly stay inside. No extremes for me, thank you very much.

Milena said...

Nicely said Paul and so true :)

Here is very cold and windy today. I think I'm going to spend some time inside for a change.

Lorri said...

Lucky you! I want snow, I want snow!

It's still dry here, no rain, no wind, just sun. LOL. I want snow!

Hugs

Neo said...

You must make some snowy photos for us!

Here is rainy today.

Matt said...

Well, I would like to join to that above mentioned tea party if possible. And let’s not forget snowballs!

Milena said...

Neo, don't you worry, I'll post some pictures soon.

Yay for snowballs Matt! And what about Snow Man?!

Matt said...

I'll bring carrot, you can do the rest of him.

LOL

Milena said...

Yep, that’s very generous and helpful of you. I’ll say even highly inventive! LOL

Paul C. said...

Can I help with the snowman building project? I still have some coal left over from last Christmas' stocking and I need to put it to good use.

Milena said...

That would be grand Paul!

Now I only need someone to actually help me to build our Snowman! LOL

I’m waiting on more snow to fall so I can start the project :D

DG said...

Stopping by to wish you good morning Lena :)

I’m willing to employ my muscles for the benefits of your snowman project. Use me!

Milena said...

Finally someone! I’m going to use you and probably abuse you but you will like it, I promise ;) LOL

Good morning to you my friend and have a nice weekend.
